Wild Bird Woodland

RAMBLING THROUGH THE WOOD.Enjoy finding wild birds and walking 4 kilometers.

Walk around the Wild Bird Woodland.


There’s hillock named Kimunmorappu on the south of the Lake Shikotsu Hot Spring. This hillside is the Wild Bird Woodland maintained by Environment Agency. It takes about an hour and a half to walk all the way around. There’re multiple woodland birds and water birds you can watch.
Enjoyment is not only the twitter of birds, but seasonal flowers. From April to June, Trillium, Tatitsubosumire are in bloom, and in early summer, Himeichige, Hoonoki come out. Along the track, there’re bunch of Japanese maples and other type of maple trees. They’re so beautiful and picturesque in the season of fresh verdure and crimson colored leaves that you may be amazed.
The path you walk is Shikotsu caldera which condition is maintained good enough to walk, but it still has up and downs and you will need shoes and clothes for trekking.
And, two bird observation cabins are on the way, so we recommend you to take the field glasses. If you have leisurely walk with your field glasses, you will feel refreshed and relaxed.
